Outdoor Wednesday ~ Stage Coach Inn Museum

Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern DayDreamer. Visit her to join in or to see more Outdoor scenes around the world.

I’ve seen signs for this historical sight in Thousand Oaks, California for a few years now and finally decided to stop and have a look. This historical information was copied from The Stagecoach Inn Museum Website.

The original Stagecoach Inn was called the Grand Union Hotel and it was built in 1876. It was moved from it’s original location closer to the Ventura Fwy. to this property further West on Ventu Park Road.

 

 

This is a collage of the Inn and the Schoolhouse built on the sight to portray a School from the 1890’s.

This schoolhouse built on the grounds is a replica of a 1890 Schoolhouse. The contents of the room and its dimensions were found in historical records.

 

The Tri-Village, made up of replicas of a pioneer home, a Spanish-Mexican adobe and a Chumash Ap (tule dwelling). It represents the three historic eras in the Conejo Valley.

 

 

No photos were allowed in the Museum itself but each room is filled with great histiorical period pieces some original to the Hotel or the owners over the years. There is one room full of gramophones and gramophone accessories. It really is worth a visit.

Thanks for stopping by and now I’m off to your Outdoors!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
